Love for Puerto Rico & it's People

My Puerto Rico is such an important part of my upbringing. Growing up with the warm love of the people, the lush mountains, blue ocean caressing the soft powdery sandy beaches and the beat of the salsa flowing trough your blood is a feeling that can not  be repaid. Now all of that has been destroyed!!! It's a shame, but its nature and part of the world we live in. Should we just take it and forget it or shall we unite and provide for our brothers and sisters? Humanity has no borders, flags nor owners. What it does have is the language of LOVE, CARING, UNITY & RESILIENCE!!! I have friends and family that I haven't been able to contact and a son that has lost part of his home, but thankfully, he is alive and well. The biggest issue we have is lack of fresh water, food, gas to cook, batteries, baby formula, diapers, battery operated fans and above all the lack of transportation both via air and ground. They have lost their largest industry, tourism for a minimum of six months.  This also affects employment and puts the islands survival at risk. I come to you requesting your help. Your large or small donation will provide immediate assistance where it is most needed on the island. I have arranged for purchase and aerial transportation of goods to be distributed through San Juan, Ponce, Aibonito, Mayagues, Carolina, Isabela, Carolina and last but not least Rio Grande. Let's get together and stand up and show our love, affection and humanity. We have been able to feed over 170+ people in Thanksgiving Day thanks to your humble donations please see pictures and videos on profile of families, receipts and more. EVERY PENNY will be used to help people. We ARE NOT keeping a single penny. In conjunction with Ministerio Telos and several local churches in Puerto Rico we want to continue making a difference. Let's keep the spirit going over the holidays and pass the word around to be able to buy Christmas gifts for kids whom may not be able to have a Christmas as well as Christmas and New year's meals. Thank you for you cooperation and may God bless you and Puerto Rico today, tomorrow and all of the days ahead. Thanks, Paul E.
